"Mississippi Legislature Passes Bill Creating Unelected Court in Jackson" - Democracy Docket

"MS House Bill 1020  would allow court personnel, including judges and prosecuting attorneys, to be appointed by white, statewide officials even though Black Mississippians make up more than 80% of Jackson’s population." -  Democracy Docket 

"That would mean voters would no longer get to elect the judges and prosecutors for this district. Jackson's mayor, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, likened the plan to apartheid." -  NPR .  Whatever happened to "No Taxation without Representation" in America?

What is 'apartheid'? How was it used for racist exploitation in South Africa? How are Republicans copying South African Apartheid laws? How did Nelson Mandela and the ANC bring down Apartheid?

Apartheid

- Apartheid, divided the South Africans into racial groups. Non-whites were not allowed to vote in national election, and confined to squalid ghettoes with few decent educational and employment opportunities, whites were afforded the basic privileges of life in a democracy. -  Morning Side Center
- Apartheid enabled the control and policed exploitation of black people as workers. - University of Chicago
- It determined where Blacks could live or own land, what jobs they could hold, and who could and couldn't participate in government. - Merriam Webster

How did Nelson Mandela topple Apartheid. What can activists learn from his struggle to stop Republican Apartheid in America?

Republican Apartheid

The Republican dominated Mississippi Legislature passed a controversial bill that would create a separate, unelected court over parts of Jackson, Mississippi, the state capital. House Bill 1020 would allow court personnel, including judges and prosecuting attorneys, to be appointed by white, statewide officials even though Black Mississippians make up more than 80% of Jackson’s population. Almost every Black member of the Mississippi Legislature opposed the bill... The bill now goes to the desk of Gov. Tate Reeves (R) for his signature. - Democracy Docket

Republican dirty tricks for voter suppression

Racial exploitation

A  quarter of the residents  of Jackson, MS live below the poverty line.  Chokwe Antar Lumumba  was elected mayor with an expansive vision of how Jackson could become a model for the country. He promised to use City Hall to deliver better services, progressive ideas like universal basic income, co-operative businesses and alternatives to policing. -  Politico 

How many of these  APARTHEID policies  do you recognize in Republican actions?

- Breaking up families
- Forcible separation of children from mothers
- Harsh treatment meted out to African prisoners
- Forcible detention of Africans for spurious statutory offenses
- Denying Blacks of their voting rights
- Vicious beatings by police
- Workers jailed for going on strike
- Fanning of racial prejudice
- Banning of active workers unions

Apartheid was a racist cover up for exploitation because it was a system of racial discrimination and separation... extreme class inequality and authoritarian attitudes and that in the system... people were divided by their race and the races were forced to live apart from each other. - GRIN

Nelson Mandela on Apartheid

The breaking up of African homes and families and the forcible separation of children from mothers, the harsh treatment meted out to African prisoners, and the forcible detention of Africans in farm colonies for spurious statutory offenses are a few examples of the actual workings of the hideous and pernicious doctrines of racial inequality.

To these can be added scores of thousands of foul misdeeds committed against the people by the government: the denial to the non-European people of the elementary rights of free citizenship; the expropriation of the people from their lands and homes to assuage the insatiable appetites of European land barons and industrialists; the flogging and calculated murder of African laborers by European farmers in the countryside for being "cheeky to the baas".

The vicious manner in which African workers are beaten up by the police and flung into jails when they down tools to win their demands; the fostering of contempt and hatred for non-Europeans.

The fanning of racial prejudice between whites and non-whites, between the various non-white groups; the splitting of Africans into small hostile tribal units

The instigation of one group or tribe against another; the banning of active workers from the people`s organizations, and their confinement into certain areas. - The Reader App
